Huge Focusrite Sound in a Small Package

The second-generation Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 USB audio interface gives you a ton of flexibility for a portable interface. Two vibrant Focusrite mic/instrument preamps are right on the front panel where you need them, while the back panel hosts two additional line inputs and four line outputs. With MIDI I/O and two channels of S/PDIF I/O, the Scarlett 6i6 is a perfect foundation for home or project studios that may need to expand in the future. And with its rugged metal unibody design, the Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 is perfect for recording on the go. Plug in, fire up the bundled software, and you're ready to rock.

Optimized second-generation technology

The 2nd-generation Focusrite Scarlett 6i6's exterior has undergone a sleek makeover. Under the hood, though, it's been tweaked and upgraded to deliver better sonics, lower latency, and enhanced ease of use. With sample rates up to 192kHz, you've got studio-grade sound you can take anywhere. And Focusrite has evened out the gain structure of the natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, letting you set levels more accurately. The instrument inputs have also been re-engineered to handle the hottest active pickups. Lastly, Focusrite has wired analog protection circuitry across the Scarlett 6i6's inputs and outputs, safeguarding your interface from damaging power surges.

Super-low latency for better performances

You know you perform better when you've got a great-sounding monitor mix with everything you need to hear to be inspired — for example, reverb and delay on a guitar solo. The Scarlett 6i6's super-low latency lets you monitor with native plug-in effects in real time, so you can hear your parts as you envision them and record better performances. At Sweetwater, we know you can't put a price on that.

Smart I/O configuration for small-format recording

The Scarlett 6i6 is a smart interface for small-format recording tasks. There are many compact interfaces out there, but few combine XLR inputs for your mics, hi-Z inputs for instruments, line inputs, and even S/PDIF digital I/O. At Sweetwater, we know that flexible connectivity is crucial even when you're recording one track at a time, and that makes the Scarlett 6i6 a smart solution.

Powerful signal management

To keep all of those channels under control, Focusrite included their acclaimed Focusrite Control software for ultimate versatility. Create up to six separate mono mixes or three stereo mixes, each routable to any of the Scarlett 6i6's outputs. Save your mixes for instant recall later on. Reroute your signal path without having to replug your whole studio. The Scarlett 6i6 was built with flexibility in mind.

Exclusive software bundle gets you up and running fast

The Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 ships with a killer software bundle headlined by the exclusive Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, which features a 16-track version of the DAW with 12 additional plug-ins, including Eleven Lite guitar amp emulation. You also get Ableton Live Lite, Softube's Time and Tone Bundle, the Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples, and more.

Best Audio Interface for a Home Studio

At first 2 mic inputs seem like it's not enough but after reading the specs and finding out this interface is expandable via S/PDIF I fell in love with it, it's perfect for me, I was in a tight budget and couldn't afford an 18i20, so I wanted something that I could use later even if I get something better (like a Scarlett 18i20) and this was my decision, all I need are two mic inputs to record guitars (stereo) and one mic to record voice, I have and AT 4040, I have never heard such audio quality, all I had back then was a Behringer Xenyx. Let me tell you, you can't go wrong with the preamps in the Focusrite Scarlett, they're clean and low distortion, just amazing!. Thanks to Connor Smith for all the advices.

Great upgrade!

It's hard to believe I am getting this much quality for such a small price. My Firewire interface finally lost its battle with the ever evolving Apple OS. I kept is running for as long as I could. I kept seeing the good reviews on the Scarlett 2nd gen series. I needed the MIDI ports as well as two headphone jacks. The software could be a little clearer to operate but I watched a couple of Youtubes and set it up in a flash. This box delivers the sound - very detailed converters. The mic pres are also clean and detailed. What I really appreciate is that whenever I turn the unit on it engages the software and switches the output to the 6i6 without any confusion. That was not the case with my previous interface. This is a financial no-brainer, you'll like it!

Beautiful

My second Focusrite. I enjoyed the Saffire 6 USB. This is superior. It is full and gorgeous. No regrets. No brainer.

Focusrite loyalist

This is my 2nd Focusrite, I had a Pro24 DSP that I used for a very long time. The green=go level setting is great, and I love the fact that you save and recall different sets I/O and mixer settings. The line inputs and S/PDIF allow me connect all of my gear so I never have to re-patch. Oh yeah, it sounds great too :)

Get It

I've had mine a little over a week and couldn't be happier. Latency is amazingly low!Has ample power do drive my JBL LSR308's like a champ.Had a pre-sale question for Focusrite support and got the most detailed and accurate answer. Gave me the confidence to purchase. Also had another opportunity to contact support (just something I didn't understand). Again, support was courteous, responsive, and accurate.My only issue is the new Focusrite Control. I wish that had a manual that JUST covered the 6i6, rather that one that covered all models. I'm not finding the new mixing software to be as intuitive as I would like.Overall.....Awesome product and support!
